The best abstracts will be chosen for the Main Sessions and selected abstracts will again be presented during the Poster flash sessions on Thursday.

Our partners from the industry will of course also be on site for interaction and to exchange information about their latest products. We thank our industrial partners already now for their engagement, since without their support it would not be possible to have our annual meeting in this form.

Last but not least, don't miss the Networking Event on Thursday, September 14, 2023 at the LUX Restaurant & Bar located within of the Kongresshaus Zürich and with a spectacular view from the terrace.

We look forward to an exciting and enriching Joint Annual Meeting 2023 and to welcoming you to Zurich.
